Juvenile Mandarin Duck

By lostnspace2011
Thanks to everybody who commented and voted on my image yesterday. Back to our feathery friends today. A juvenile Mandarin taken at Swanbourne lake in Arundel, a possible escapee from WWT Arundel. Beautiful birds full of character Smile And personally i think the most beautiful duck in the world Smile

Very true Leon. Smile

I was unlucky not to see an Adult Male Gareth, seen the female but no sign of a Male, seemed to be a few Juvi`s around though
